Will the rings around Saturn eventually make a moon?

Nelson Joseph

It is unlikely that Saturn’s ring system will ever form one large moon. Saturn has an extensive ring system, with more than ten different sections to it. However, the ring system is extremely thin, just ten metres (30 feet) thick on average, and is made up of mostly very small ice particles, so even if a moon was made from all the ring particles it would only be a few hundred kilometres across.

There are many moonlets located within the ring system that are proposed to have formed from material in the rings, but these are usually from

Next-gen Rockets

Right now, companies around the world are building a new breed of super launcher that will have the capability to take bigger payloads in greater numbers beyond low Earth orbit (LEO) than ever before.

Known as heavy-lift rockets, these behemoths are essential if we are to continue our unmanned exploration of the Solar System as well as taking humans to new destinations. But there’s a reason the last such vehicle, the Saturn V, was retired over 40 years ago; these massive launchers are not only expensive but complicated and a huge engineering challenge, too. Now, however, it’s time to take

An ice moon may be volcanoes

An ice moon may be volcanoes Facts

NASA space unit investigated icy moon of Saturn Dione for geological activity. Data were obtained that the bark of the satellite has a similarity of cracks, which may indicate the presence of active volcanoes on it. It is reported that the faults found are very similar to the "tiger stripes" of another moon of Saturn, Entseladusa who once splashed huge amounts of water into space.

Activity on Dione is supported by several obvious facts. Earlier in the magnetic field of Saturn was discovered by a stream of charged particles, most likely got there

There are many myths and misinterpreted facts about the universe. Sometimes, things that seem familiar to us, in fact, partially or totally incorrect. In this article are 10 little-known facts about the universe, such as the solar system.

In space, objects in motion. Gravity is one object affects the other path that eventually lead to its change. After the discovery of Uranus in 1781, astronomers noticed a slight deviation from the expected path of its orbit. Presumably, the reason for this could be the gravity of

Around Saturn rotates incredible antiquity



Rings and moons of Saturn are much older than previously thought. As reported by NASA, the data space probe "Cassini" show that they are around four billion years. This means that the gas giant spins a sort of "antique shop" — the ancient celestial body that appeared during the birth of the solar system, at a time when there were around a young star protoplanetary cloud.

Draw such a conclusion allowed astronomers to data "Cassini" that around Saturn has a large number of water
